Theano

Agder,Norway

The steamer Theano was sunk by British Handley Page Hampden torpedo bombers outside Lindesnes 13. December 1942. She was built in Holland in 1929, but was requisitioned by the Kriegsmarine after the outbreak of world war two. She was used as a supply vessel from early 1942.  With a little help and information from Erling Skjold and his Norwegian shipwreck archive, divers from Søgne dive club found the wreck of Teano in the summer 2020. The wreck is resting today on her keel as a classic Donald Duck wreck on a depth of approx 100 meters, west of Lindesnes.
